Although technology has made sending letters not as common as it used to be, there are still some situations in which letters are needed.
So what size letterhead is appropriate?
Most business correspondence is delivered on 8.5″ x 11″ or A4 size paper. In the United States, letterhead larger than this calls attention to the envelope and may be perceived as wasteful. However, in countries where wastefulness carries less stigma (for example, Germany), larger sizes are appropriate.
How should letterhead be used?
The information required for a business letter is rarely all included on the letterhead. Therefore, it is essential to direct recipients to the appropriate place on your website where they can find additional company information or contact you directly. This information should be included on the letterhead, typically in a note at the bottom or as part of your logo.
How do I make a Paper Letterhead?
If you have a laser or inkjet printer, making letterhead is easy. The first piece of paper that comes out of the printer can be used as temporary letterhead. Print your address and contact information on it. If you only use one printer, consider making a reusable template you can use with any paper. You can also print your address on pre-made letterhead sheets that are available at office supply stores.
Use a high-quality laser or inkjet printer to produce the best results for your letterhead printing needs. If you use an inkjet to print your letterhead, make sure the paper is not too thick, as this may cause the ink to run.
Use a quality laser or inkjet printer for an attractive letterhead without making any mistakes. The final appearance of your stationery is based on the quality of the printing and the paper. Therefore, using the highest quality printer is essential because it produces clean, crisp letters and graphics that can distinguish between a professional image or an amateurish one.
Most business correspondence is delivered on 8.5 x 11 inch or A4 size paper. Slightly smaller-sized articles of 7 x 10 inches are also commonly used in some countries like Germany. Make sure your letterhead is more significant than its envelope to allow room for the recipient’s address.
Figuring out what size letterhead is appropriate can be a bit confusing. The information required for a business letter is rarely included on the paper; therefore, it is crucial to direct recipients to the appropriate place on your website to find additional company information or contact you directly. Determining what size letterhead to use for business can be confusing, so we hope this post helped made it easier to understand.
